"She wasn't just a car. She was a mechanical mystery."

This book is full of humor, adventure, and mystery. What could be better? Well, a flying car, of course! It's a great, fun read for those elementary kids reading chapter books.

There's a cliffhanger at the end when we discover Chitty's time travel feature! I'm looking forward to the next in this series from one of my favorite authors.

"The Tooting family is in a bit of a lull - Dad has just been laid off from his job, and Mum, in an attempt to keep him occupied, has brought home a beat-up old camper van for him to tinker with. But after Mr. Tooting and his son Jem pull a strange old engine out of a tree in the junkyard and install it in the van, not only does the van come to life - it starts to fly! As the flying van whisks the entire family off on a quest, its history begins to come to light (but, as this is just the 1st of a planned new series, the fun is only beginning). Based on the beloved children's classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, this high-energy, hilarious adventure is a blast whether or not you've heard of or read the original."

I really liked this book and I like how the author uses reference to the first one. The thing I didn't like though is that there could have been more to the ending. It didn't tell what happened next.
